UEL: Late Goals Save Lech and Gornik After Tricky First Round

YEREVAN, Armenia. July 19 (PSN) – Both Lech Poznan and Gornik Zabrze took part of the second leg of the first round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday.

In the second leg, Lech Poznan lost 1:2 (0:0) away after a very poor performance with Gandzasar Kapan in Yerevan. Lubambo Musonda and Gegham Harutjunjan scored to put up the third placed Armenian league team after the half. Trailing 2:0, it looked as Lech were going to be knocked out of Europe already in first round. However, a last minute goal in injury time by Tralka saved the Polish club’s cup campaign entirely. Despite having lost, Lech were able to score a decisive away goal which played to their advantage and allowed them to advance on 3:2 aggregate. In the second round they will play FC Shakhter Soligorsk from Belarus.
